Radeon R9 Fury X vs Radeon RX 6900 XT

Intro

The Radeon R9 Fury X has core clock speeds of 1050 MHz on the GPU, and 500 MHz on the 4096 MB of HBM RAM. It features 4096 SPUs as well as 256 Texture Address Units and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 6900 XT, which has GPU clock speed of 1825 MHz, and 16384 MB of GDDR6 RAM running at 2000 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 5120 Stream Processors, 320 Texture Address Units, and 128 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon R9 Fury X 275 Watts
Radeon RX 6900 XT 300 Watts
Difference: 25 Watts (9%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon RX 6900 XT should perform a little bit faster than the Radeon R9 Fury X in general. (explain)

Radeon RX 6900 XT 524288 MB/sec
Radeon R9 Fury X 512000 MB/sec
Difference: 12288 (2%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 6900 XT should be a lot (about 117%) more effective at AF than the Radeon R9 Fury X. (explain)

Radeon RX 6900 XT 584000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 Fury X 268800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 315200 (117%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon RX 6900 XT is superior to the Radeon R9 Fury X, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon RX 6900 XT 233600 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 Fury X 67200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 166400 (248%)

Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
